Lyrics

Toro, I am humble for tonight I understand,
Your royal blood was never meant to decorate the sand.
You have suffered great injustice, so have thousands before you,
I offer an apology and one long overdue.
I am sorry, Toro I am sorry,
Hear my song and know I sing the truth.
Although we were bred to fight,
I reach for kindness in your heart tonight.
And if you can forgive and if you can forgive,
Love can truly live.
And if you can forgive and if you can forgive,
Love can truly live.
Toro, I am frightened, but I'll use my final breath,
to tell you that I am sorry,
let us end this dance of death.
To centuries of agony, that to your heart we sent
here and now with my amends, the senseless killing ends.
I am sorry, Toro I am sorry
Hear my song and know I sing the truth.
Although we were bred to fight,
I reach for kindness in your heart tonight.
And if you can forgive and if you can forgive,
Love can truly live.
And if you can forgive and if you can forgive,
Love can truly live.
And if you can forgive, and if you can forgive,
Love can truly live.

Toro, I am humble for tonight I understand,
Your royal blood was never meant to decorate this sand.
You've suffered great injustice, so have thousands before you,
I offer an apology and one long overdue.

I am sorry, Toro I am sorry,
Hear my song and know I sing the truth.
Although we were bred to fight,
I reach for kindness in your heart tonight.
And if you can forgive and if you can forgive,
Love can truly live.
And if you can forgive and if you can forgive,
Love can truly live.
And if you can forgive and if you can forgive,
Love will truly live.
